Michelin Guide rated neighborhood restaurant with creative and shareable cuisine and a year-round patio.

"With a clear vision, a striking aesthetic and distinctive, mouthwatering flavors, Canon restaurant in East Sacramento is a stellar and welcome addition to the city’s dining scene." - 4-Stars, Sacramento Bee

"Find the convivial Canon sequestered away from the downtown bustle. This cool space that contrasts deep tones against bright whites is enveloped by the aromatic smell of smoke, so it’s no surprise that the house is packed most nights. Chef Brad Cecchi is the culinary mastermind and his menu is pivoted around playful small plates." - Michelin Guide

Canon is committed to a healthy and productive workplace. A 4% service fee is added to dine-in bills to help cover the cost of employee health and wellness benefits and to provide a kitchen equity stipend to our back-of-house staff.

    I arrived 30 minutes early for my reservation with my 90 year-old parents and they found us a very nice table despite how busy it was. As always the cocktails were inventive and delicious and every dish of the dinner (vegetable and non-vegetable) was amazing.

    The food was bland and overrated. The food presentation was good and the portions were fairly large. This place seems like if you asked AI to create a modern fine dining restaurant. It looked ok but there were definitely some things that were way off. The service was fine but the server wasn't in a good mood. I won't be going back and will actively discourage people from going. There are plenty of great restaurants in Sacramento. This is not one of them.

    We had an excellent meal. The service was impeccable. We ordered the New York to share, and it was plenty for the two of us. Along with appetizers of pickles and tater tots Along with sourdough to accompany the main dish, we were in heaven! Our entire meal plus drinks and a shared dessert came to $134 very reasonable for all we had. Highly recommend.

    We returned for the pork chop, and chicken drumsticks. Winner! Again eating outside under cover with fresh air and a fire pit. Perfect. This time our server had a bit of an attitude but she was probably just tired as she had said the week was crazy busy. My words not hers. Otherwise it was a perfect evening. Our new favorite in Sac

    Food is family style and was a healthy serving size. The sourdough and butter makes for a great starter to share. Recommend the roasted cauliflower as a side to your protein. Great roasted. Drinks tasted delicious. The vinegars that are served along side the oysters complimented them very well. Overall great place. Nice size menu that caters to most palates. Will definitely return.

    I dined at Canon in September 2023 and LOVED it! The ambiance, food, service, everything was wonderful. I took friends earlier this month and the experience was definitely not the same. The oysters were so small, they were almost not there! The himachi was also very small, although it was quite delectable. I wanted so much more and am used to having a normal size portion. It seemed that they may not have had enough and were trying to be economical. Then there was an extended delay with the swordfish we ordered. Our server had been attentive initially but as the place became more crowded, she became very busy-possibly assigned too many tables-not sure. I inquired about the delay with the swordfish main dish and requested a drink. Twenty minutes later, my drink arrived and about 10 minutes later and two inquiries the swordfish was placed on the table. It was lukewarm and dry. I took two bites and said, no thank you. It appeared that it had been sitting ready but not picked up for a while. They did remove it from our bill. I felt bad for suggesting Canon to my friends and none of us will eat there again. The quality of the food did not match the high prices this time. Unfortunately, Canon was very lacking.

    We love Canon, the food is unbelievable I highly recommend staying away from your “comfort zone” and trust the beautiful minds and expertise of the chefs…you will not regret it. The staff from the front door to the back kitchen are just wonderful…they have a clear vision of making your experience unforgettable. I had originally made the reservation for outdoor because it was the time we wanted to dine, however it was my husbands birthday and after overhearing how we wished we were inside our waitress kindly came over and let us know they just had a table of 4 that opened in the dining room. My husband was so happy! We had the Tots, Sourdough loaf, Wilted Brussels Sprouts, Tortilla Espanola, Golden Beets & Ancient Grains, Roasted Cauliflower and NY Strip for a group of 4 and we were in heaven For dessert we had the Peanut Butter Chocolate Pudding and Miso Apple Pie…amazing! Thank you Canon ❤️

    We 3 enjoyed all the Small Plates except for the brussels sprouts (didn't order them). As suggested by Canon, we shared everything and we ALL liked everything. Standouts (for our taste): the cauliflower and the duck salad. For dessert we had Canon's version of apple pie (great) and the chocolate peanut pudding (even greater!). A wonderful tasting adventure.

    Great place in Sacramento. We were sat outside, but the way the area was divided, we felt like we had our own room. I have had more attentive service, but I know they were busy. Food was very good and executed well.
